i try to make a package from existing r functions. that means i load the
functions with "source()" in R and use "package.skeleton()". After it i
add the fortran code (written under win) in the src-folder and try "R
CMD check" which tells me the package is not a source package:
* checking for working latex ... OK
* using log directory '/Users/andqua/Documents/TMP/Test.Rcheck'
* checking for file 'Rsmooth/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* checking if this is a source package ... ERROR
Only *source* packages can be checked.
If i try to build a tar.gz file with "R CMD build" than i get following
(andqua at g4an:Rlibrary)R CMD INSTALL Test/ -l
* Installing *binary* package 'Test' ...
* DONE (Test)
for my understanding this should be wrong because the package is no
binary and if i try to load this package with "library(test)" i get the
error message that the packagae is unknown.
So i guss the problem is the fortran code (devweloped under win xp) but
i have no idea to solve this problem because should can compile the code
because g77 is installed and gcc also.
Furthermore i have no administrative rights at this pc but that should
be not a problem if i change add my own folder "Rlibrary" with
".libPaths()" to the known libraries.
hope the descripion of my problem was more detailed now and helps to
find a answer for my problem.
